Informants = bookmarks

The Bunk

Fans of The Wire may remember this quote from the Bunk:

You ain’t got no informants on the dock? Someone you could go to on this? Someone you got a history with? They say a police is only as good as his informants.

Sometimes I reckon that a coder is only as good as his bookmarks. I’ve got over 2000 bookmarks (fairly well organised) and rarely a day goes by when I don’t have to reference one for a fix or design resource.
